A few ways by which one could clean and replenish the body system within a few months is mentioned here. However, pregnant or nursing women are advised to keep away from following such routines.
Liver is the only organ in the body that helps the body to remain free of toxins and helps in detoxification.

Herbs for a healthy Liver

Liver, being one of the vital organs in the body, should remain healthy. A damaged liver is considered the root cause of various physical problems, and the functioning of the entire body gets toppled.
Any sort of chemical treatment, actually affects the Liver, whether it be prescription drugs, or synthetic hormone treatments or herbal treatments or even junk foods. The food consumed usually passes through the liver via the blood stream, leading to toxin accumulation in the Liver. When Liver gets overloaded with toxins, the energy levels gets affected, as it the Liver that controls the hormone levels the body.
Of-course, the vital step to a healthy Liver, is the diet. A diet high in fiber, low in refined sugar and saturated fats is the best for healthy functioning of the Liver. In addition, the following combinations of herbs are recommended for a healthy Liver.

After one week, while continuing to drink the tea, a combination of three capsules each of dandelion root and milk thistle, two capsules each of spirulinsa and ginger and one capsule of kelp can be taken. After taking this combination twice a day for a week, again the regular treatment schedule can be continued along with the liver tonic tea.
The herb, Milk Thistle, in particular, supports normal liver functioning in a great way. It has been found beneficial in treating all kinds of liver diseases such as necroses, hepatitis, cirrhosis, and in recovering from liver damage due to alcohol or drugs.
